The project targets efforts to preserve the largest contiguous tropical forest complex in the world in three countries with areas located within the so-called Guiana Shield (Guyana, Surinam and Brazil). To this end, the project supports comprehensive conservation area management in the Brazilian states of Amapá and Pará. In Guyana and Surinam, inventory analyses are being conducted to quantify carbon, biodiversity and deforestation factors to provide a foundation for developing national REDD demonstration projects.
